Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: European Economic Community (6 Jul 1971)

Mr Eric Deakins: If it is not possible for the Government to forecast the growth of the economy five years ahead, unlike the Common Market countries we have just heard about, will they be able to state in the forthcoming White Paper on British entry that we shall have sufficient balance of payments surplus in 1978 to finance both faster growth and the cost of entry?

Mr Eric Deakins: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will issue a circular to local authorities with a view to placing applicants on their housing waiting lists in centrally determined categories based on degree of priority, and to publicise locally the criteria used to assess priority so that potential applicants in housing need can assess their eligibility for, and chance of obtaining,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing Waiting Lists (30 Jun 1971)

Mr Eric Deakins: Since the Minister in a previous answer has admitted that many people are in housing need but are not on local authority waiting lists, surely the purpose of that circular has not been fully served.

Agriculture (Support Prices and Import Duties) (24 Jun 1971)

Mr Eric Deakins: As hon. Members know, I have an interest in agricultural matters. The purpose of these Orders, particularly the ones dealing with beef and veal, is not to put a bottom in the market, which was the original intention of the Labour Government's Orders, but to replace the system of guaranteed prices. That means that eventually the target indicator price on beef and veal will have to be raised to...

Surely he has a duly to complete these discussions as soon as...

Mr Eric Deakins: As hon. Members will know, I have an agricultural interest to declare since I am a consultant to a firm in which I was employed for over 15 years before coming to the House of Commons. I hope that my interest will serve not to cloud my judgment, but will enhance the value of contributions I hope to make on agricultural subjects in this House. I was struck by the rugged individuality of the...

Mr Eric Deakins: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, in view of the tremendous strains to be expected on our balance of payments during and beyond the transitional period before entry into the Community, the Government should make clear to the Six that no rundown of sterling balances can begin until we have solved our balance of payments problems associated with entry, even if by 1980 monetary and...
